1. Allay any fears surrounding this food group
2. Back it with traditional wisdom and practices
3. Give you tools to ensure that your food does heal and not harm you

Have a listen and leave a comment. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Welcome back to my series on Traditional Foods- the very foods which early researchers such as Weston A Price found to be the hallmarks of the most robustly healthy folk on the planet. Today- thanks to supermarkets, food is not nearly so tricky to come by as it was in pre-industrial times. At the same time the quality of our convenience foods does not appear to be doing our health any favours. (7) With a little guidance and research however you too can whip up gourmet, healing remedies in your own kitchen from locally sourced produce.
